Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated on Thursday at the second global Covid conference that the World Health Organization has to be changed and reinforced in order to develop a more robust global health security architecture. He also advocated for the WHO’s vaccination and treatment approval procedures to be streamlined in order to maintain reliable supply chains. The conference aims to stimulate new initiatives to address the pandemic’s issues and to develop a stronger global health security architecture.
PM Modi also stated that the regulations of the World Trade Organization should be made more flexible. ‘It is apparent that a globally coordinated approach is essential to battle future health catastrophes. We must establish a robust global supply chain and ensure equal access to vaccinations and pharmaceuticals,’ he added.
Here are the key points from Prime Minister Modi’s speech at the Covid Summit:
- The Covid epidemic continues to upset lives, disrupt supply lines, and put open societies to the test. In India, we used a people-centric approach to combat the epidemic.
- The world’s largest Covid immunisation campaign is in India. In India, about 90 percent of individuals have already been properly immunised.
- In India, traditional remedies are often used to augment our battle against Covid and to increase immunity.
- We set the groundwork for a WHO center of traditional medicine in India last month, with the goal of making this expertise available to the rest of the world.
- To establish a more robust health security architecture, WHO must be transformed and reinforced. India is prepared to play a critical role in this endeavour.
